Welcome To The 30th Masterpiece Monday!

Hi! How's your Summer so Far? I've been very busy with some furniture painting projects and my masterpiece this week is my old dining table that's been sitting around in the garage. I painted it white and re-purposed it into my new crafting table!

The metal chair was a curb find and has been sitting in the garden for years. Now it's my crafting chair.
My table top has my dad's tackle box and some more of my Maui shell collection. I can now keep my sewing machine out and handy, instead of in the hall closet. And I no longer have to sew out in the living room!
The old fashioned picture cards were my Grandma's

The upper shelf unit was in my bedroom and held a flat screen tv. We bought this piece at a rummage sale for $5.

Here is the "keepin' it real" before picture of the shelf. Charles had to remove the center shelf so that the tv would fit inside. The shelf grooves and hasty  paint job didn't show once the tv was in and we had dvd's stacked on either side. 
 I decided to use some cork board I got for free off of Freecycle.org. I knew it would come in handy some day. This was super easy and took no time at all.
I decorated it with vintage family photos and tissue flowers I made out of an old pattern.
I'm using my milk glass collection to hold some supplies.
This is my mom and dad's 1960's radio we always took camping and to the beach. :O)











Next time, I'll reveal a little storage display area to the left of the craft table.

Love that table, what a great place to create with so much room. What a great idea to use the cork to cover up the problem area. Great storage ideas! You made me think about my dad's old red transistor radio..he used to listen to baseball games while outside working in the yard.

Hi Mary,
Love your creative space! I really like how you have incorporated family pieces into the room. Looks like a beautiful space to create.
Thanks for hosting the party. It's been a hectic summer so I haven't linked as often as I would have liked to.

I love how you added family heirlooms to view and enjoy as you create masterpieces at your crafting corner... loved those vintage pictures and milk glass collection. Wish I had a crafting area like this so I need not drag my sewing machine out of the closet every time. And I loved the scroll work on that beautiful garden chair. Thanks for sharing and hosting each week. Have a wonderful week!~Poppy

Can I just say how much I love your chair? My mom got a bunch of milk glass from my dad's mother years ago. I love seeing it used so much now. Looks like you have a space surrounded by many happy memories! Have a great week.

Mary,
First of all, your chair is to absolutely die for!! The table repurposed as a desk is just so wonderful!! Love what you did with it and adding the shelf to it was a fantastic idea.
The cork board and everything that you attached to it and placed on the shelves are stunning!!

You created a delightful area that is just pure eye candy!!

Thanks so much for hosting and for sharing!!

Hugs,
Debbie

I love your milk glass collection. I just starting collecting them. I like too, what you did with your old buttons. I have some in an old tin and didn't know what to do them. Thanks for sharing your ideas!

Your sewing/craft table is so charming. I love that chair! Very clever how you covered the upper area of the hutch with cork & so sweetly display vintage pics. Very nice.
